AMD today announced a new business focused on developing and
licensing graphics core technologies to semiconductor manufacturers
throughout the handheld industry.
The new AMD IP licensing initiative combines engineering expertise,
AMD graphics technology, and application developer and publisher
support to deliver solutions for the development of low-power 2D
and 3D graphics on mobile phones.
STMicroelectronics has licensed AMD graphics technology, including
2D, 3D and vector graphics core engines, as well as related
software compliant with OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG 1.0 standards.
STMicroelectronics intends to combine AMD?s handheld unified shader
architecture graphics technology with its Nomadik platform.
